obama doesn't have to face the voters anymore. so a lot of this talk about where he stands in the polls is only relevant if it actually leads to defections among democrats. the republicans already oppose him. if his low poll numbers cause democrats to head for the hills, that's when we should start saying it's really significant. so far, that hasn't happened. so the consequences of his low poll numbers are not yet serious. that doesn't mean they might not get serious in the new year if they can't get their act together on the website. if they do get their act together and these patches work, we don't know the antibiotics answer to that question yet, despite the cheerleading from the white house. if it does get better at the beginning part of the new year, he has every opportunity to have a much more successful 2014. and i think what we're starting to see now on this question of the minimum wage, which affects a lot more than kids, the assumption was it used to just be for teenagers. now it's affecting like 40% of minimum wage workers who are over 25 years old. this means that there are
